Subject: HyperText

Is there still hope for questions that purport to yield simple yes/no-type
answers ? Having followed the recent discussion on ambiguity and interpretation
vs. formalization in mark-up languages one tends to wonder .... (By the way:
hats off to Willard for initiating such lively and high-calibre debates !!!)

Anyway, I will stick out my neck:

1.) I am looking for THE PC-based HyperText software - I'd be most grateful for
expert advice on this matter.

2.) Is there anybody on HUMANIST who uses PROLOG (specifically: LPA WinProlog) ?

Coming to think of it: even though the latter question can of course be answered
adequately by a mere "yes/no" I would definitely appreciate some semiotic
embellishment, like: your name and e-mail. Thanks!
